Protest PVRE Series Boardshorts

When Protest set about designing their new range of boardshorts, their team riders had a few specific requests. Super lightweight. Four-way stretch. Water repellency. Clean-cut style. Laser cut holes. Welded bartags. The PVRE Series is what Protest came up with: the all you could wish for, all boxes ticked, high-quality boardshort.

The PVRE Series is the pinnacle of the Protest range, where clean-cut style and cutting-edge technology rule. Alongside the excellent selection of luxury, lightweight boardshorts, which come in two lengths with a lace-front closure, there are also chic, surfable beachshorts, that look like walkshorts but have all the technical features necessary to surf in the utmost comfort. All are made from a four-way stretch, quick dry, water repellant fabric.

In addition, the crotch on all boardshorts is extra soft, helping eliminate discomfort in those particularly sensitive and vulnerable areas prone to rashes (we’ve all been there); meanwhile the waistband lace fastening has extra grip, ensuring your boardshorts stay right where they’re supposed to.

The PVRE boardshorts are the perfect combination of  stretch, lightweight materials, and design; they’re ideal for surfing, you can spend hours in the water without the inconveniences of rashes, which can be such a problem — Tristan Guilbaud (below)


“It’s one of the best boardshorts I’ve ever tried: very light, very stretchy and NO irritation, which for me is the most important point! They’re perfectly adapted for surfing in warmer water. I’ve really enjoyed every session in my PVRE boardshorts!” — Gaspard Larsonneur

“In my opinion Protest has reached the peak with the PVRE series! It is the lightest and most comfortable boardshort I’ve ever surfed in before, I feel as though I’m surfing naked — but with style (and without the rashes!). It dries so fast, allowing me to be in and out the water all day while staying comfortable. Combine this with the flawless style and all in all you’ve got the perfect boardshort” — Jatyr Berasaluce (below)
